Thinker | Posted on

If you are a foodie you would have often fantasize about having at least one dish from each corner of the world and experience the delicacies worldwide. Well, being a religious foodie comes with its own adventures. There are some dishes that you would not have imagined even in your wildest dreams. Have a look at these bizarre delicacies eaten around the world. Listed below are only five of them (‘Cause I bet you can’t take more than that in one go :P).

1. Chaprah –India
Let’s start from the home itself. This dish is a much preferred one in Chattisgarh, India. It is made up of red ants, their eggs, and spices. Its chutney is favorite in the people of the region. Red ants are also used for garnishing various dishes there.
2. Jing Leed (Grasshoppers) – Thailand
It is a dish made up of grasshoppers. I hope you are not afraid of them. They are seasoned with salt, pepper power and chilly, and then fried with a big wok. The juice that oozes out of these grasshoppers when you take a bite is worth tasting, only if you are not afraid of grasshoppers that is. ;)

3. Sannakji –South Korea
This dish incorporates live octopus. Intriguing, isn’t it? It is served fresh with sesame oil, and with the octopus almost alive that you can see the tentacles squirming. The dish can be fatal sometimes.

5. Wasp Crackers – Japan
These are biscuits filled with wasps just like chocolate chips in your usual chocolate chip cookies.

Mind blowing, aren’t they? All I wonder is why would anyone have such dishes. But, different regions, different lifestyle, different people, and consequently different food habits. It’s no wonder that some of these dishes are very expensive and come into the delicacies of their respective regions. So if there’s any adventurous foodie out there, planning on trying these bizarre dishes, Bon Appetite!
